Project management system works for multiple stakeholders across disparate sites, providing an accurate view of how projects are progressing
The Beaver Group – an award-winning digital media agency – is successfully using Autodesk PLM 360 product lifecycle management software from Autodesk, Inc to help rapidly expand its business while continuing to offer exemplary customer service on fast-track, multi-site projects.
The Beaver Group provides digital media, design and creative services to brands such as P&O Cruises, Showcase Cinemas and Burger King. The company selected Autodesk PLM 360 to expand access to critical data for all aspects of its business, including programme management, engineering, quality, procurement, operations, sales and marketing and support data, and to ensure that every user has anytime, anywhere access from virtually any mobile device or web browser.
Peter Critchley, managing director at Beaver Group, says: “We desperately needed a project management system that worked instantly for a variety of stakeholders – designers, technical specialists, external suppliers and partners such as architects, engineers and contractors – without the expense or complexity of other systems on the market. Autodesk PLM 360 provides everyone involved an accurate view of how projects are progressing and increases the transparency of our work.”
Prior to Autodesk PLM 360, Beaver Group held critical product information in disparate systems and version control was a major issue since work on different products was happening concurrently across several sites. To effectively bring together all aspects of the design process without cumbersome infrastructure, Beaver Group turned to Autodesk 360 PLM and now uses it to help manage the entire design, project management and installation process of digital menus and signs.
Critchley says: “We came to the point where the business had to decide whether to invest in a new IT infrastructure or a cloud-based system. But in reality there was no choice. There was nothing else on the market that could have suited us so well.”
